In Prefs/Security/Certificates/My certificates/, if I attempt to import an ".p12" file (e.g., exported from FireFox), the format is apparently not recognized (the name of the file is in grey instead of black, and it cannot be selected).

This problem does not exist in FireFox.

I am using Camino Version 2006021400 (1.0Int), in French, on MacOS X version 10.4.5.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a .p12 certificate (e.g., by export from Mozilla, or from MacOS keyring)
2.In Camino's Prefs/Security/Certificates/My certificates/ select "import" in the work-menu (bottom of the Certificates window)
3.Try to select the .p12 file.

Actual Results:  
The file cannot be selected.

Expected Results:  
It should be selectable, then the certificate should be imorted.
This looks like another variation on bug 313776 (I assume we do have the ability to support .p12 format certifs if Fx does).

Attached patch Simple fixSplinter Review
Simple fix to allow us to import .p12-files as well.

On a side note, I note that the Restore-dialog allows ".p12" and ".pfx" files to be selected. When is Restore used and when is Import used?

Restore is intended to be used with a file produced by Backup. I forget if it replaces existing certs with those read in.
Sfraser, wanna r/sr this? (I'd like it if you could target >1 person for each review request in bugzilla.)

Use "Restore" instead of "Import" for .p12 certificates.
bug 335635 are open for improvements to the import/restore UI
